Review of Sociolinguistics and mobile communication by Ana Deumert

  • Zannie Bock University of the Western Cape
Keywords: Book review


In the “Acknowledgements” to Sociolinguistics and mobile communication, Deumert comments that during the writing process, the text “developed a life of its own” and took her on a journey to places, both theoretical and virtual, which she had not anticipated (p. x). What makes her book such a pleasure to read is that it takes her audience on the same journey, now carefully planned and crafted to ensure maximum coherence, interest and accessibility.
